Powerful Leaders Shaping the Profession

To support the women who lead the profession through personal growth and leadership development of colleagues, the PICPA is pleased to honor those efforts with the Women to Watch Awards. In partnership with the AICPA and its Women’s Initiatives Executive Committee, we are pleased to sponsor this prestigious award. 

The award winners join other CPAs across the country who have been identified as Women to Watch because of their personal success and commitment to fostering success of others. 

Nominations are open to all female members who hold both AICPA and PICPA membership and have been in the profession at least 10 years. Self-nominations are encouraged. Members may also submit multiple nominations.

The deadline for nominations was Jan. 31, 2018.

Recipients will be honored at the Women’s Leadership Conference on June 28, 2018.

Candidates evaluated based upon:

  • Mentoring
  • Public/community service
  • Leadership – firm/business, associations
  • Authorship – professional journals and consumer outlets
  • Professional education development and presentation
  • Improvements to the workplace
